Akismet is a general purpose spam filter. Bad Behavior specializes in filtering “link apsm.” However, you can do the same thing by restricting the number of links allowed in comments; which is already built into WordPress.
We don’t specifically endorse one plugin over another for a few reasons. Foremost, is to avoid the appearance of favoritism, unless there is a specific technical reason for recommending or not recommending a particular plugin. The second reason is that what makes a plugin “good” depends on the application. And finally, we don’t want to get into the business of supporting plugins that are not made by us.
But with all this in mind, is there a specific problem you are experiencing with spam; or are you looking for plugins because you just think you’re going to need it?
I think you can use our security plugin as an alternative to the bad behavior plugin:February 6, 2014 at 1:50 am #21397emb123Member
OK, this is very helpful. Thank you so much for the more detailed reply, wzp!
Although… I don’t see how to limit links in comments anywhere… if you have a pointer, that would be most helpful.
Many thanks.February 6, 2014 at 3:31 am #21398
WordPress –> Settings –> Discussions –> Comment Moderation –> Hold a comment in the queue if it contains XXX or more links. (A common characteristic of comment spam is a large number of hyperlinks.)February 6, 2014 at 4:36 pm #21399emb123Member
Brilliant. Thank you!February 24, 2014 at 11:39 am #21400blogmeistressMember
Hi, I would be grateful to get help with the following 2 issue that some of our customers are experiencing when trying to sign up for our free videos. Here are the steps to follow:
Issue 1: When hitting SUBMIT after entering the details, a blank page with the same url [http://jevondangeli.com/nlp-vids-registation] appears but no error message is being displayed. This means new subscribers cannot create a username and password and are hence unable to login to get access to the videos.
Issue 2: When hitting SUBMIT after entering their details, some customers experience the following fatal error message:
Full Error Details
Fatal Error (E_ERROR)
Call to undefined function get_plugins()
Thank you in advance for your support.February 24, 2014 at 2:55 pm #21401
The actions leading to, and the resulting error message, seem to be related to Gravity Forms; and not any of our plugins. Have you tried opening a support ticket for Gravity Forms?

Thanks wzp, will do so right away.February 10, 2015 at 4:12 pm #21403katedMember
You can add older versions of Seamless Donations to your list of bad WP neighbors. Prior to version 3.2.4 of the plugin, it would start a new session after eStore had already started one, and disconnect eStore from its current session. Someone brought this to the attention of the developer, who did the stand-up thing and fixed it right away. So to fix, just upgrade to the latest version of Seamless Donations.September 3, 2015 at 9:47 pm #21404
Bad Behaviour has proven really useful for my site, so I’m eager to find a workaround. Since there is a whitelisting feature, I think all I need to do is to whitelist the URL that receives the IPN.
Can you confirm which URLs would need to go into the whitelist?September 4, 2015 at 1:34 am #21405adminKeymaster
It is not the URL that they blacklist. They basically block any IPN notification from PayPal. So ask them what you can do to let PayPal send the IPN to your site (without getting blocked by that plugin).September 5, 2015 at 2:48 pm #21406
They do have a whitelist feature that will effectively disable the plugin on selected pages. See screen capture:

Please give me the URL of a page where you have your eStore buttons and I will be able to tell you what your IPN URL is (so you can add it to that other plugin settings).September 7, 2015 at 2:03 pm #21408
Ok, I’m still migrating from Simple Paypal Cart. By the way, I am getting paid notifications with it, but I don’t think it uses IPN.April 22, 2016 at 12:37 pm #21409jeffporterMember
Widgets Reloaded is another plugin that causes issues. Only tested locally so far, but I have removed that plugin from the main site anyway.May 26, 2018 at 10:14 pm #21410asnailslifeMember
Just an FYI, I installed WP Photo Seller and after a successful installation, I could not update any of my settings. Found this forum and tried the trouble shooting tips. The plugin “WP Smush” was causing the problem. Deactivated it and all is good now!
